Welcome to Wool on Sundays!
We’re almost half way through the year and, outside, everything is growing very green.
Even the garden is growing, which I’m very happy about because it takes up an extraordinary amount of time with all the weeding and sowing and weeding and planting and weeding…it’s beginning to look as if we will eat for next year :D
Inside my ripple blanket is growing in many colours and I think I’m about half way through that.
It is VERY wide – I’m sure it will over hang the sides enough but haven’t actually measured because because I don’t want to be put off – but don’t think it will need to be more than about 80″ long because the foot of the bed prevents anything from hanging over at the bottom and we don’t need it going over our heads! It is quite a challenge to get even colour placement but so far I’ve managed use about half the wool in equal colours. If I let myself I could keep frogging forever so I’ve made a rule just to keep going regardless of doubts and each time I start a new row my main guide is that it hasn’t been used too recently.
I’m setting myself a deadline of August 1st to finish so I fear my Wool on Sundays posts might be a bit repetitive for the next few weeks unless I can think of any else woolly to talk about.
If you have any wool or yarn themed posts this week, I’d love you to link up. The rules, as usual, are: 1). Posts must include some content – makes or musings or photos – related to knitting, crochet, felting, spinning or yarn. 2). Projects sewn from felt or wool fabric or stitchery using wool are also welcome but please don’t link posts that are exclusively about sewing, quilting and fabrics. 3). Posts don’t have to be from the past week but please put a link to WOOL ON SUNDAYS or grab the button from my sidebar and include it in or at the bottom of any posts you link up. 4). MOST IMPORTANT visit anyone else who links.
